Mum struggled to keep her head up because she felt so bad to be so bent over. She walked more miles in her life than anyone I have known and was as strong as a horse but her bones let her down.

May 2013 Be Your Best Year Yet

I was provoked into writing another post right now by one of the comments I got back from the last one. Someone was a bit resistant to the idea that we can create a life that is more wonderful than before when youth and our bodies start to go.

In this odd world we have co-created there are many beliefs about aging being a process of deterioration, a downhill path, a one-way trip to a bad end 😉

Often the diagnosis of bone thinning is a first message from our body that it is time to treat it with a lot more care. Time to put ourselves first finally! But many doctors are so fear based that they scare women with what has forever been a natural occurrence. Telling women of 45 that they should no longer do forward bends is an example. Would you tell me how we can be in our lives without doing a forward bend!! And that is only a risk if you already have fractured vertebrae.

But now we have such wonderful ways to communicate with one another through the internet, we can find out about women turning their lives around miraculously every day. You could spend  20 minutes watching some of the TED and TEDx talks and be totally inspired to step forward in a new way into your own life. There are no problems that can’t be changed, even if the change is only in our attitude towards them.

Since I became really ill ten years ago and brought myself back to health from knowledge gained on the Internet and from books, my life has truly become more wonderful and a bigger adventure every year. Back when I was sick I thought, “How can life get better now, I’ve done everything I came to do, I’ve raised a wonderful child, been through college and become educated, had a business that was successful, been married twice and not interested in doing that again. What is left for me to do?”

Now I clearly understand that I was thinking from a stressed place. When you think from stress, and stress is endemic in this culture, you are not thinking clearly. Release your stress and think from a brand new place and then your thoughts are actually creative and useful. You can release stress by EFT, a tapping process that is clearly explained on youtube, or by being out in nature, or spending time with people or animals that you love, meditating or doing whatever you do to make your world feel good again – not including eating ice cream 😉

And if you have no clue what useful thing you can do in the world to help make it a better place, no clue what special talent and skill you came into share until your dying breath ;-), then just put ‘women’s blogs’ into Google and see the thousands of ways that women are contributing to each other now with the miracle of connection. Women are writing their truth and, NO!, it has not all been said before. If your voice and your life experience is lacking then it has not all been said 🙂

So I want to end with some links to videos that inspired me when I was down, check some of them out and see what is possible. The first two are women much older than most of us but that is why they are inspiring. They didn’t subscribe to the cultural beliefs, they marched to their own drums.

Watch this one to the end, it will surprise you Never underestimate an old gal

So I wish you your best year ever for 2013
